Niceburnt orangewith hint of amber color.
Overwhelming malt aroma - like sticking my noose into a bag of dry malt.
Light hop aroma - faint.
Light/Medium body - finishing rather watery...Not a full mouthfeel
Feel bad, but overly sweet / heavily malty beer that I was going to pour out.

Another example of American Craft Beer going over the top with the hops. I'm looking for a little more balance, nuance and subtlety. I am sure that some very fine malts and yeast are underneath all those hops but it's a shame that they can't be tasted. I hope that the current fascination with over hopped bees will wain.
IPA is BS! Put the craft back in craft brewing! Save the hops and boycott IPA.

A- Clear pale amber colored body with a bubbly bone white head.
S- I really don't smell much of anything, maybe some sweet malt and a dash of citrus, but not much.
T- A little more hop flavor comes through in the taste. Mostly sweet caramel malt, with a dash of piney hops at the end. Still nothing much going on though.
M- Medium-carbonation and medium bodied. Very drinkable.
O- Really lacking aroma and flavor. Almost tastes like it is an old pale ale, but the freshness sticker on the bottom says otherwise.

Crystal clear orange glow with big bright white sticky head. Interesting sweet and fruity nose. Caramel, some pine and tropical fruit. Lots of malty caramel sugar up front followed by bright fruitiness and moderate bitterness to balance. Bitterness is a nice contras to the bright sweetness. Slick mouth feel, hop resin, dull carbonation medium to full bodied. A super complex and pretty good pale ale but at the price of $12.99 a 6? You can find better pales.

After reading a few other reviews of this beer I went with an aggressive pour and it yielded a nice one finger craterous white head that left a full ring of soap scum behind as it settled into a froth mass atop a clear medium golden with a tinge of orange.Where the aromas shit after an aggressive pour and letting it sit you would think something would come out if there but nothing except for a trace of tasted grain,lighter mouthfeel but it went down very easy.Wow really nothing stands out on the palate mild toasty-grainy notes some residual sweetness a bit of leafy hop but pretty bland.Iam hoping this is a off and or old bottle label says best before April of 08 so Iam guessing its off or just not as good as others may think?
